Profiling the Deterioration Risk Factors of Patients Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus on a Diabetes Specialist Outpatient Waiting List

Indicative Funding
$30,000 over 6 years
Patients seeking specialist advice from a specialist outpatient department require a referral from their general practitioner to access services. This research explores the time taken for patients to deteriorate if waitlisted in the order of date accepted for their referral compared to rates of deterioration for patients if the accepted referral was waitlisted in order of the patient?s individual risk of deterioration. Stage 1 focuses on identifying patient centric factors within a type 2 diabetes mellitus cohort which lead a patient to deteriorate on a waitlist. Stage 2 involves developing and implementing a framework to support the reconfiguration of waitlist management.

Integrated Practice Pharmacists within Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services

Indicative Funding
$1,040,046 over 2 years (administered by Pharmaceutical Society of Australia)
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples experience a much higher burden of disease due to heart disease, diabetes and other chronic health problems. Many deaths from these illnesses can be prevented if patients are better supported to take their medicines and prescribing quality is improved. This trial will explore if including a practice pharmacist in the primary health care team within Aboriginal community controlled health services (ACCHSs) leads to improvements in the quality of care that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people receive. Our trial will tell us if prescribing by doctors is improved, if patients are more likely to take their medicines, and if indicators of their health are improving over time.
